Open Call funded residency 2018 at AiR Tilburg Netherlands

AiR Tilburg Netherlands resides together with SEA Foundation in an Amsterdam School style building. The building has recently been renovated into an artist colony - a hub of artistic activity where exhibitions, talks, meet-ups, screenings and residencies are organised.

SEA Foundation invites applications from visual artists, curators and writers who have a specific project or period of work to focus on, and for whom this dedicated time is invaluable. The individually shaped residencies include bespoke mentoring. SEA Foundation facilitates 6 working periods in 2018, each with a maximum of 3 months.

SEA Foundation is a Dutch not-for-profit, artist-led organisation in Tilburg the Netherlands established in 2011. Over the past few years SEA Foundation became known as an umbrella label for, support, solo exhibitions, art projects, exchanges and publications. From 2013 we also run an Artist in Residence programme – AiR Tilburg – which attracts artists, curators and writers to residencies that include bespoke mentoring.

The residency comprises 2 live/work studios (for single or double occupancy) each with a private bathroom and studio-working facilities. On the ground floor there is a project space that stages public and/or discursive activities. Apart from resident’s studios there are common rooms like kitchen, salon, dining room, gallery, garden and another two guest bedrooms with en-suite facilities. Therefore, AiR Tilburg Netherlands, can accommodated up to 8 people at once.
